He will continue to work with the company as an author for Rodale Books.

"Bill's ten years of editorial and digital expertise at the Men's Health brand make him the perfect choice to oversee such a venerable title," said Rodale. "Over the past decade, he and his team have been instrumental in creating a brand that both advertisers and readers trust, and I have the utmost confidence that he will continue to introduce the unparalleled content that keeps them ahead of the curve. As we enter the 25th anniversary year for Men's Health, we're bringing new vision to this important global brand."

"Dave has been a talented partner for our brand and books business over the past fifteen years. Under his leadership, Men's Health grew to become the largest men's magazine brand in the world, his book franchises were perennial bestsellers, and Women's Health grew at an incredible pace, both domestically and internationally. I am very thankful for his creativity and leadership, and truly wish him all the best as he grows in new ways and in new places."

Phillips joined Men's Health in 2003, serving as the Editor of MensHealth.com as well as Executive Editor of the magazine. During his time as the brand's online editor, Phillips quadrupled traffic from 2.5 million to a record 10 million monthly uniques.
